Say goodbye to winter skin…..

Botanics Super Balm

Botanics Super Balm

Hey everyone, its me again.. I thought today I would do a post on a product I came across about a year ago and is a bit of a winter skinsaver. 

I love applying Vaseline last thing at night to my face, mainly as I do get dry patches. Now I know very well how unatural it is to do this.. someone once said that it is like putting petrol on my face!!, therefore I wanted something with the same consistency but more natural. I also wanted a product that sunk in quicker and wasn’t as greasy as Vaseline.

Enter.. Boots Botanics Super Balm.   

This product used to be sold as ‘organic’, but someone somewhere discovered that It wasn’t actually 100% natural and therefore it was re-packaged as 93% organic. For me, this is fine as it is quite unreasonable to expect a product that costs under £5 to be 100% organic considering how much it costs to source naturally derived ingredients.

Anyways, onto the review.  This product is raved about and scored very highly on Makeup Alley skincare reviews. I would say after trying it for a year that it’s one that I always have in my draw.  It gets rid of parched dry skin instantaneously and the results can be seen when used as a night cream. I would not use this in the day as it is greasy, so be warned.

It smells very ‘natural’ and contains the following ingredients: shea butter, argan oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil canina seed oil. check out the makeup alley review here: http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/itemid=122582

 

It costs around £3.99 and is only available from Boots.  The last few times I have tried to buy this it has not been in stock, which shows its popularity!.  Other balms I have used are Elizabeth Ardens 8 hour cream and Balm Balm organic skin balm. I must say I prefer Botanics to both of these. However it is only an 11ml pot which is tiny, but lasts a while as you only need the tiniest amount. Its also great for carrying around 🙂
